    New Cigar Smoker Experience!

    Hey y'all, so I just wanted to share what I've been smoking / enjoyed in my first year of cigars. So I started last summer, and since then I've been trying to figure out what sticks I most enjoy! My local tobacconist started me out with milds of course, and I did enjoy them, but I've developed a...

    Any experience with a Villiger humidor?

    Hi all, A first time humidor user.. I picked up a used large humidor from a tabacco company called villiger. I'm led to believe that a company called 5th avenue was the original manufacturer. The hydration pack is just a simple well with a sponge. As the unit is varnished it's not easy...

    Smoking Experience

    I went to my girlfriends work x-mas party the other day and of course it was a "No Cigars" place while everyone huffed down cigarettes. I asked my waitress, and since I didn't believe her no, I asked the bartender... he said "It's bad enough that we have to breathe cigarettes all night, let...

    First cigar experience, what should I take away from it?
